The Tallest Tale by Derek Elkins

------------

The Tallest Tale is a parody of tall tales and legends, such as the tales of Johnny Appleseed, Paul Bunyan or Ross Perot. An old man, desperate for whiskey, hobbles into a bar and reveals the tallest tale ever heard about the evils of Pecos Bill and Paul Bunyan, a woman who thought she was a pirate, three Indian braves who were also Shakespearean actors and a wily hero named Prairie Dog Pete.

Prairie Dog Pete was the rootinest, tootinest, shaking his bootinest cowpoke in the whole Wide West. He could leg wrestle a cougar with his bare hands, square dance with a pack of grizzlies from sunup to sundown, and drink a cup of sarsaparilla standing on his head while leg wrestling a cougar and square dancing with a grizzly.
